But, no sooner had he spoken than a big wave rolled, splish-splash-splosh, right up the shore of the pond, which was rather sandy, and it sprayed itself over the toes of Buddy and Brighteyes the wave splashed, you understand not the sand, of course. "Whee!" cried Buddy, all excited-like. "There's a wave!"

I will fight the last great fight alone; for I know this: I shall not easily be overcome, and with my fallen foes I will tread on Bifrost Bridge. Therefore, farewell! When the bones of Eric Brighteyes lie in their barrow, or are picked by ravens on the mountain side, Gizur will not trouble to hunt out those who clung to him, if indeed Gizur shall live to tell the tale.

"Neither do we, but next door to us is the loveliest milk-weed you ever saw, and I thought it a shame to see all the milk juice go to waste, so I churn it every week. It makes very fine butter." "I should think it might," answered Brighteyes. "But isn't it hard work?" "Yes, it is," replied Mrs.

Now, if I have rhubarb pie for supper, and the ham sandwich doesn't squeal when they put mustard on it, I'll tell you about Brighteyes and the peanut candy in the next story. It happened, once upon a time, that Brighteyes and Buddy Pigg were walking through the woods together, not far from their home. They had been over to see Sammie and Susie Littletail, and they had had a very nice time.

For some minutes the mother and daughter were silent, each striving to devise some method of escaping from their difficulty. At last Brighteyes spoke. "I see a way, my child," she said, with more than her wonted solemnity, even when discussing grave matters.

"Bad news for thee, Brighteyes," answered the mate, "and that Baresark thrall of thine, for we must loose your bands." "That is good news, then," said Eric, "for our limbs are numb and dead because of the nipping of the cords. Is land in sight?" "Nay, nor will be for thee, Eric." "How now, friend? how now? Sure, having handselled peace to us, ye mean no harm towards two unarmed men?"

Without a word Brighteyes turned her horse's head towards the camp, and was about to ride humbly away when Little Tim interfered. "Hold on, girl! I say, Whitewing, she's not so far wrong. Many a time has woman rendered good service in warfare. She's well mounted, and might ride back with a message or something o' that sort. You'd better let her come."

And he looked at the big vegetable as if it would, somehow, move itself. "I know a way," said the June bug, at length. "How?" asked Brighteyes. "Why you and your brother must eat as much of it as you can, and then it will be lighter, and easier to lift, you see. Just gnaw a lot off the turnip, and you can carry it, then." "Oh, but that would spoil the turnip," objected Buddy.

There was so much that Buddy and Brighteyes couldn't eat all their share, and they were bringing it home to their papa and mamma. Well, as they were walking along, thinking what a good time they had had, the two guinea pig children heard a rustling sound in the bushes, and two big, round, staring eyes peered out at them, and there was a noise like a dog growling. "Oh, quick!

"For thy words, I say this: that it is risky to hurl names at such as I am, Björn, lest perchance I answer them with spear-thrusts. Thy answer, Ospakar! What need to wait? Thy answer!" Now Ospakar looked at Brighteyes and grew afraid. He was a mighty man, but he knew the weight of Eric's arm. "I will not fight with thee, carle," he said, "who hast naught to lose."
